Thomas C. Devlin Finds Pecu
liarities in Bookkeeping
of Closed Bank.
ENTANGLEMENT IS GREAT
Slakes Work of Receiver Slow.
Clerks Will Require More
Time Than Expected.
Portland, Sept. 7. Ever since a
day or two after Thomas C. Devlin
took charge of the affairs of the de
funct Oregon Trust & Savings Bank
as receiver, rumors of a more or
less sensational character as regards
the discovery of Irregularities by the
staff of experts working under his
direction have been in persistent cir
culation. While Devlin denies such Is the
fact, or even that his work at pres
ent has anything to do with export
ing the books, which would require
months, he practically lends color to
the reports by admitting that the
system of bookkeeping pursued was
"peculiar," and evidently not do
signed for tho eye of a receiver.
Whether tho expertlng of tho
books may show a deficit, such a dis
covery would In no wise Interfere
-with tho liquidation of the bank nor
militate against tho depositors re
ceiving as much of a return as pos
sible from the assets on the various
amounts placed In the institution.
1 ."My work at present has 'nothing
to do with expertlng the books,"
said Devlin. "It would require
months to expert tho books, and a
deficit could be discovered only by
"balancing tho accounts. We are
laboring now merely to discover the
assets and tho liabilities. On each
oto Is placed tho receiver's number,
and tho same Is done on every bonU.
"The work has taken much longer
(ban I expected, for several reason
We have run against certain con-"
editions we did not expect. For Ill
stance, It has taken half a day to
discover whether a purported asset
is really nn asset. That Is what is
largely causing tho delay."
Drawing his attention to tho re
mark about "running against cer--dltlons"
not expected. Devlin Was
asked If from his experience in such
31nes ho had so far discovered any
thing causing him to suspect that
exporting of tho books will bring to
light anything in .tho nature of a de
ficit. Rather hesitatingly ho ans-
,1 wered in tho negative and then
n&i "Wo "havo found tho funniest
.methods of bookkeeping Imaginable.
Thoy are certainly peculiar. If tho
bank had been kept going they might
havo boon rectified all right In time,
but It Is evident they were not de
signed for tho oyo of a receiver. They
do not look good now. These meth
ods aro causing a good deal of
troublo In getting out our report.
Wo aro working as hard as wo can
to oxpedlto matters, and will havo
tho report ready at tho earliest date
